Multiple transformer
Transformer Trans*form"er, n. 1. One who, or that which, transforms. Specif. (Elec.), an apparatus for producing from a given electrical current another current of different voltage. [1913 Webster]

2. (1990's) a toy consisting of a figure or representation of an object, constructed of interlocking parts in such a way that a series of turning or twisting motions of the parts can transform the object from one type of object to a different type of object, such as from an animal to an automobile. [PJC]

{Multiple transformer}. (Elec.) (a) A transformer connected in multiple or in parallel with the primary circuit. (b) A transformer with more than one primary or more than one secondary coil.

{Parallel transformer} (Elec.), a transformer connected in parallel. [Webster 1913 Suppl.]
